Depressing milestone

At least, I think it is. From the WordPress admin, just now:

Akismet reports 30,000 spam

That’s a lot of damn spam.

On the upside, at the moment there are 42,242 comments here which are not spam. Surely that’s worth something.

    Spam…..would this fall into both categories.
    Yeah, I know I’m a smart ass.

    30,000 comments are spam. 42,242 comments are a Treet.

    I’m jealous. Mine says this:
    Akismet has protected your site from 116,398 spam comments already.
    There are 561 comments in your spam queue right now.
    And I don’t have nearly as many actual comments

    Then again, I have recorded several repeat-spammer IPs and IP ranges and blocked them with another plugin; otherwise, I’d have nearly 400,000 spams recorded.
